Spring is the perfect time to perk-up your home’s curb appeal. To get started, it’s best that you go outdoors and take a walk around your home and property to inspect what may need to be done.

To be honest, I prefer to spend those cooler days cuddled up with a great book or cooking up some new crock pot recipes. However, at the first sign of warm weather, I actually get excited about giving every inch of my home a shine.

When I hear the term “fixer-upper” I think about The Money Pit, the 1986 comedy starring Tom Hanks and Shelley Long as a yuppie couple who buy a beautiful-but-seriously-dilapidated old house that nearly ruins their relationship. It makes for a funny plot, but in real life there’s nothing funny about buying a home and discovering that the roof leaks, or the wiring hasn’t been upgraded in decades.
